Mt. Ruapehu ski trip - Turoa ski field

Just came back from a ski snowboarding trip. Physically exhausted. I will let the pictures do the talking...


It was cloudy and windy


Carpark was full. A lot of skiers


In the equipment hiring area


Checking the Pass


Filling out details


Ski boots counter


Selecting my boots



Boots done, now heading to the snowboard counter


All ready!




All set to hit the powder slope!

Cool! Snowboarding! I can't snowboard or ski to save my life. I just keep on falling over and I can barely stand. I seriously lack motor coordination skills. :/

Yep, most of the small small towns in NZ are named in Maori language. Thus, the weird names.

l b:
It looks good, feel good but painful after that. The muscle ache and fall I mean.

oceanskies79:
It was fun and I'm loving this sport despite the fall I had. LOL

missmall:
Haha, you're not the only one. I fall like a snow ball too.

Ms. _____ 2 be!:
There should be many nice ski fields in the states? You should try this coming winter!

I can imagine that really exhausted. I cannot play that activities as I do not know how to balance.. hahaha..

cc:
Yeah, you should try it. The ski fields shouldn't be too far from Auckland.

mistitpurple:
Pigi got so much fat, no need warm clothing lah. I did give him a hat though. Hahahahaha

eastcoastlife:
No wor, didn't make any snowman or throw snowball. I was busy snowboarding and throwing myself like a snowball on the slope. LOL

kyh:
Hahaha, the snow almost the same as those on ice kacang. Nothing too fancy one la.

oceanskies79:
Thanks PY! And same to you too!

keeyit:
You should be good in balancing leh since you do yoga, no? Some of the yoga poses requires a lot of balancing, as I was told. :)
